Review: Michael Rasmussen’s “Email Promos Exposed”, Conclusion

April 21, 2009

Today I am going to wrap up the review of “Email Promos Exposed”. Then we can move on to something else the next time. So, on with the review.

VIDEO 8 – COMMON MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE
I loved this video, because it showed me some
mistakes that I was making that I wasn’t even
aware of. Unless you’re a seasoned pro, you’re
probably guilty of some of the things that
Michael talks about in this video as well, and
that’s why it’s so valuable. I’ve shaved years
off my learning curve, because now I can avoid
some of the costly mistakes that I was bound to
make in the learning process.
VIDEO 9 – HOW TO CREATE FOLLOW-UP EMAIL PROMOTIONS
This video alone is going to make me a lot of
money. Why? Because I used to only send out one
email promo for each affiliate promotion I was
doing. Michael showed me in this video how
important it is to send a follow-up promotion,
and he showed me exactly how to do it. He covered
things like:
* The psychology of follow-up email promo’s.
* The 2 main types of follow-up promos that make
the most money.
* How to overcome readers’ objections in your
follow up emails.
* The 2 most common mistakes people make when
writing follow-ups and how to avoid them.
VIDEO 10 – HOW TO WRITE BACK END EMAIL PROMOTIONS
Every marketing guru out there says that the REAL
money is on the back end. I’d have to agree with
them, but the problem is… most people have no
idea how to set up a back end system that makes
money. This video will teach you how to set up an
automated back end that’s loaded with killer
promos that make you lots of cash on autopilot.
He reveals things like:
* The big difference between regular and back end
email promos.
* How to prepare a back end promotion sequence.
* Common mistakes people make when creating back
end email promos.
VIDEO 11 – CREATING AFFILIATE EMAIL PROMOTIONS
This could be the most important video of the
entire package for a lot of people, because most
people email their list to promote other people’s
products as an affiliate. Let’s face it, if you
only have 3 products, can you really afford to
only email your list 3 times a year? They’ll get
bored hearing about the same old products over
and over again. This video sheds some light on
how to create killer affiliate promos. Michael
reveals things like:
* The two main types of affiliate promos.
* What makes affiliate promos different than
regular promos (and why ignoring this huge secret
could cost you big money).
* Michael’s favorite tactics for creating
affiliate promos that no one else is doing.
* 3 different ways to add scarcity to your
affiliate promos (this is the most important
section of the video, so make sure you watch it
over and over again).
*************************************************
CONCLUSION
*************************************************
As you can see, Email Promos Exposed really packs
a lot of punch! Most of the courses out there
offer only watered down, weak content. Not this
one! These videos are going on my “A-list” for a
long time.
I’ve already watched them twice, and plan on
reviewing them every couple months to make sure
that I have the principals, techniques and
tactics burned into my mind.
If email marketing is an important part of your
business (and in my opinion, it’s the most
important part of ANY online business), then you
owe it to yourself to check out Michael’s
exciting new videos, Email Promos Exposed.

Michael Rasmussen’s “Email Promos Exposed” Video Series: How to Write Killer Email Promos That Get Results!

March 28, 2009

This post has nothing to do with design persay, but it has great content in helping to keep in contact with your list. Most of us have a need to write great emails. I have found that the videos Michael Rasmussen made will help the beginner to the established writer. So, with that intro, lets get to the review of videos 1 and 2 of the series.

Have you ever been faced with the task of having
to write an email promotion to your list, and
then realized that you didn’t know what to say or
how to say it?

Michael Rasmussen’s new video course “Email
Promos Exposed” promises to solve that problem
for you by walking you through the actual process
of creating killer email promos step-by-step.

I decided to see if Michael’s videos live up to
their promise by trying them out myself. Here’s
what I found:

*************************************************
Overall Quality
*************************************************

The first thing I noticed when I opened up the
first video was the stunning production quality.
He used Camtasia Studio for the production, which
is now the industry standard for creating
high-quality screen capture video products. The
audio is near studio quality, and the graphics
are very professional. These videos were made by
someone who KNOWS what he’s doing. Well done!

I also liked how Michael divided the videos up by
section, and then again by sub-section. For
example, one video is all about the subject line,
and then there are different parts of that video
that each cover a certain area of crafting a
killer subject line.

Now let’s move onto…

*************************************************
THE ACTUAL VIDEOS
*************************************************

Here’s a brief summary of video 1 and 2 of 11. Obviously
it’s impossible to list every single thing here,
but I want you to get a feel for what each one
covered, and how well it covered it.

VIDEO 1 – INTRODUCTION

This video served as an introduction to the whole
course. You get to see a picture of Michael in
his every day life, and he establishes his
credibility right up front by talking about some
of his massive successes online. He even provides
proof of credibility by displaying two checks in
the amount of $50,000 and $25,000 which prove
that, when it comes to the subject of making
money with email promos, he knows his stuff.

This is a good lesson for anyone to get. Whenever
you’re teaching people how to do something, it’s
good to establish your credibility up front, so
that there’s no doubt about whether or not you’re
qualified to talk about the subject. Most product
developers either skip or minimize this step.

VIDEO 2 – BEFORE YOU WRITE THE PROMO

This video talks about some things that no other
marketer has bothered to mention. You’ll learn
things like:

* The mindset you need in order to write a killer
promo

* The different tools you need before you get
started

* How to keep your emails laser-focused

* How to create an outline that practically
writes the email for you.

This was a fantastic video, and did a good job of
kicking things off.

The next time I will give my review of videos 3 and 4, I don’t want you to get information overload with this post.

Till next time!
